Original idea was to rent a bike but the problem is I don't have a motorcycle license (off road races in the US and don't need one in Egypt)... Current plan is to rent a vehicle (can be 4x4 if needed) and explore the surrounding areas...
Would be great to get some tips on where to go, what to see, where to stay!
I will be returning to southern Africa in October with my family for 15 days or so of vacation/safari. Some overlap is ok...
2nd Q is that I need to pick up some replacement parts for my 02 640 Adventure... Seals, gaskets, hoses, cables, clutch hub, water pump. Any shop recommendations?
Best bet to get parts would be Pro Action KTM. They are in Johannesburg.
Renting a bike would be a nono. Prices are insane. Renting a car or a 4x4 would be a better bet. In Johannesburg, I would still suggest driving down to Clarens (Lesotho border) sleeping there and venturing down to Kwazulu Natal (Durban) or going back to Johannesburg depending on time.
Get a gps though :)
